Mitochondria have their own DNA, structured somewhat differently from the DNA...
Towards Manufactured Blood Loading... One of the near future goals in the tissue engineering field is the low-cost mass-manufacture of blood, removing the need for donations and blood banks. Development leading towards mass produced blood has proven a slower...
Investigating the Normal Regulation of Insulin Receptors in Aging Loading... Genetically altered organisms lacking an insulin receptor live longer. The related processes of insulin and growth hormone signaling are one of the better-studied areas of biochemistry in the context...
